Allyship Toolkit Part 1: Affirming LGBTQIA+ People, Interpersonal Allyship
In this intersectional workshop for LGBTQIA+ and non-LGBTQIA+ identified people, you will learn and practice a series of vocabulary tools for your support of LGBTQIA+ justice in your classrooms, offices, and conversations. You will learn and practice describing the differences between assigned sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation; you will reflect on your own identities. You will practice identifying – and enacting bystander intervention in – microaggressions around gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation. And you will set your intention for inclusive language (including pronouns) for your communities. You will also learn about existing and necessary campus resources for LGBTQIA+ people.
